Gallen cleared by NRL judiciary

Cronulla captain Paul Gallen has been cleared to face South Sydney on Sunday after successfully contesting his dangerous contact charge at the National Rugby League judiciary.

Gallen's been found not guilty of a grade one offence after the panel accepted as accidental an incident involving Gold Coast's Beau Henry in Saturday's 20-16 defeat by the Titans.

The New South Wales State of Origin skipper collected Henry with his boot as the Titans five-eighth clung on to his leg in an attempt to slow down a play-the-ball.
